9/11 Memorial Museum

Vidicom CEO Christy Ferer says progress is being made in Lower Manhattan regarding the construction and rebuilding of the 9/11 Memorial Museum.  After Hurricane Sandy, the 22 million gallons of water that flooded the museum site damaged the construction and was a serious setback.

Thankfully, many of the large artifacts accumulated from the wreckage debris that were slated to be displayed in the museum were unharmed.  Most were kept in storage, as the construction was placed on hold due to various controversies regarding the matter.  Christy believes, as do many others, that this was a blessing in disguise, allowing the artifacts to maintain their ability to present a story.

It’s been an honorable and trying mission to create a sacred place within this museum for those who’ve lost loved ones. Mike Bloomberg and Christy Ferer have been discussing and acting upon how these artifacts can best address the public, and present their unique messages.  (Check below for a adorable picture of us together in our construction outfits)
